Explore the lost. Play in the dark.

It’s late. It’s dark. And it’s cold.

But there’s a full moon out there, so we pack up our gear. Our van, Moon Patrol, is all juiced up. We’re off!
The Destination? Middle of Somewheresville.
The Tunes? ’80s-era radio that buzzes in and out as we roll from town to town.
The Snacks? Sweet ‘n salty Gas Station grub. You treat yourself when you’re on the road.

The Feels?

A sort of jittery swirl deep in the belly. You know, because when you pull up on a dark gravel road that leads to a shadowy bulk of brick, wood, and weedy overgrowth…you get nervous. (Too many Jason movies.)

The Purpose?

Sometimes it feels like this country is falling apart.
This is our own little way of putting some pieces back together.


hell no.

No HDR computery BS. No trays of toxic chemicals either. We just use those lights and stuff up there.

watch us in action

Lightpainting + Music = Match made in heaven!
